A Quick Checklist of Ramadhan

By Khurram Murad Submitted by Sheikh Muslim Banji

Crescent moon

  • Make a resolve to win the maximum favour of Allah by performing extra voluntary prayers (Nawaafil), making frequent Du'a and increased remembrance (Dhikr).

  • Try to recite some Quran after every Prayer. In fact if you read 3-4 pages after every Prayer you can easily finish the entire Quran in Ramadan.

  • Study the Tafseer (commentary) every morning.

  • Invite a person you are not very close with or your relatives to your home for Iftar, at least once a week. You will notice the blessings in your relationships.

  • Bring life to your family. Everyday, try to conclude the fast with your family and spend some quality time together to understand each other better.

  • Give gifts on 'Eid to at least 5 people: 2 to your family members, 2 to your good friends, and 1 to a person whom you love purely for the sake of Allah.

  • Make commitment to join Islamic study circles or Halaqas to learn more about Islam and improve your own life. 

  • Donate generously to the masjid, Islamic organizations, and any where people are in need or oppressed. "This is a month of sharing." 

  • Share Ramadan and its teachings of peace & patience with your neighbours. 

  • Sleep little, eat little. Make sure you do not defeat the purpose of fasting by over-indulging in food and being lazy.

  • Seek the rare and oft-neglected rewards of 'the night better than a 1000 months',Laylatul-Qadr

  • Weep in private for the forgiveness of your sins: It is the month of forgiveness and Allah's Mercy! It's never too late.

  • Learn to control your tongue and lower your gaze. Remember the Prophet's warning that lying, backbiting, and a lustful gaze all violate the fast.

  • Encourage others to enjoin and love goodness, and to abandon everything that Allah dislikes. Play the role of a Da'ee (one who invites to Allah) with zeal, passion, and sympathy.

  • Experience the joy of Tahajjud prayers late at night and devote yourself purely and fully to Allah in the I'tikaf retreat during the last 10 days of Ramadan.

  • Remember: "Time is not money or gold; it is life itself and is limited. You must begin to appreciate every moment of your life and always strive to make the best use of it."
